Both John Malone and a naked Thai woman were not wearing seat belts when the speeding Suzuki lost control and hit a concrete post on Wednesday morning in Chiang Rai, Thailand
An ex-pat Irishman who died in a high-speed car crash may have been having sex with a Thai woman when the collision happened, investigators believe.
The speeding black Suzuki lost control and hit a post at 1am on Wednesday morning, killing teacher John Malone, 39, in Chiang Rai, northern Thailand.
Rescuers who arrived at the scene first found John wearing just a blue t-shirt while a naked Thai woman was on the black passenger seat – neither had their seat belts on.
Horrific CCTV shows the car spinning several times as sparks fly and glass smashes before it comes to a stop further down the road.
Pictures show John lying naked on a stretcher while the young woman is unclothed in the car but unconscious.
The male driver – who was clothed – and the female front seat passenger who were both Thai were treated at Kasemrad Sriburin General Hospital.
The volunteer rescue foundation Siam Ruam which attended the crash said authorities were now investigating.
A spokesman said today: “One foreign man died in the crash. The staff helped to bring out the bodies and give first aid.
“This was a black Suziki Swift and it was speeding.
“We think the man was having sex or maybe a b****** in the the car.
“There were three Thai people and one foreign man. Two of them were women. They were injured and the driver was unconcious but only the man died.
“How it happened exactly we do not know yet. From the scene we know that the two passengers did not have clothes on. The man had a small t shirt.
“We don’t know how the driver crashed. We have not been able to investigate with him yet.”
The rescue foundation said that all three of the other people involved in the crash were Thai and that John, originally from Co Longford, was the only foreigner.
The driver and the front seat passenger are in a serious condition.
John had been working for a number of years as a teacher at The Learning Center in Chiang Rai, a small city in northern Thailand on the border with Laos and Myanmar.
The company posted a tribute online. They said: “We have lost today one of our beloved teachers, John Malone.
“John was at the heart of TLC team, helping in every way with his usual smile and happy attitude. You will always be in our hearts. RIP John.”
A spokesperson for the Department of Foreign Affairs in Ireland confirmed that they are aware of the incident and are “providing consular assistance.”
